The Philippine Star - - NATION - – Ed Amoroso

STA.ROSA CITY, La­guna – Po­lice have no leads yet in the killing of a sus­pect in a mul­ti­mil­lion-peso car rental scam.

Su­per­in­ten­dent Chi­tadel Gaoiran, Cal­abar­zon (Cavite, La­guna, Batan­gas, Rizal, Que­zon) spokesper­son, said probers have yet to iden­tify the per­pe­tra­tors and de­ter­mine the mo­tive for the killing of Eleanor Ros­ales, 58.

Ros­ales, sec­re­tary of Rafaela Anun­cia­cion, the al­leged mas­ter­mind of the scam, was shot in front of her house on Zavalla street in Barangay Malusak, Sta. Rosa City, La­guna at around 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

Sources said the in­ci­dent could be re­lated to the cases filed against Ros­ales by the victims of the scam. Busi­ness­men, po­lice­men and lo­cal of­fi­cials were among those al­legedly duped by Anun­cian­cion and her group into lend­ing their ve­hi­cles which were later pawned.

Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent Joel Ju­cu­tan, High­way Pa­trol Group-Cal­abar­zon deputy di­rec­tor, said prior to the in­ci­dent, they planned to file per­jury charges against Ros­ales in re­sponse to the com­plaint she filed be­fore the Of­fice of the Om­buds­man against the po­lice of­fi­cers who ar­rested her last month.
